I have a chevy nitemare gettim worse' My car was overheating and then
started leaking in different places noticed the fans werent turning
electrially, put in the shop explained that possible thermostate sensor,
water pump,electrial short ??? many options the were suppose to check the
raidiator pressure to find leaks they said they didnt. they replaces the
thermostat they said they couldnt figure out why mmy fans werent turning
but i can drive it on the freeway just watch the temp then i went to pick
it up next day now there was a puddle of water my raditator is cracked
down the neck says proably because of the pressure from it overheating.
they said they left my car idle for over an hour and didnt find no leaks
Could this have damaged the raditator and more components. Please need
more information on what damage could have taken place by then running my
car in idle for over an hour.

Go back into the repair shop and start screaming about what lousy
service you are getting for your money. Call it "Unacceptable"! They
should have taken the car for a test run after it was warmed up, I
mean what did they think that the engine gets its hottest in idle?
I'm fricken tired of these so called repair shops/dealerships that
just fix the symptoms and don't thoroughly check a vehicle out. Why
should anyone pay good money (sometimes more than the tech is worth)
just to be disappointed with the workmanship? Have way too much down
time? Or get charged because the tech is just changing parts and is
incapable of making a diagnosis? UNACCEPTABLE !!! I tells ya.
